Rarely has a quest, real (the Battle of Hastings) or imagined (throwing the ring back into the fires of Mt. Doom from whence it came) been as honourable, worthy, and true as that of Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee.
Abe - a poor, weird-looking, floor-cleaning schmuck - is the lone hero of the Mudokons and he (that is, you) must save as many of your fellow kind as possible before RuptureFarms turns them into pops. If that terrifying premise didn't make you immediately flick off your PS1 and go play with your Moon Shoes, then hours of fun awaited you.
Here are just some of the many things that inevitably went down.
Amusing yourself for twenty minutes by farting repeatedly
In the game... mostly.
Realising you could make your farts green with the classic combination of R1, Up, Left, Right, Square, Circle, X
Imitating Abe's creepy "follow me" at every IRL opportunity
Hello! Hello! Follow me. Okay?
Secretly wondering if they had to Go There with the mouth-sewn-shut thing
Finding out Molluck the Glukkon's secret ingredients and genuinely feeling a bit unwell
Biggest twist of 1997.
Getting seriously sassed by the loading screen
Kind of wishing you could've spent more of the game as a floor cleaner
No one can deny it looked hella fun.
Having to restart a level (again, and again) because the checkpoint system was designed by the devil
Squinting at the screen because being in the figurative and literal dark came as a pair
Generally being one with Abe on all levels
Living your best life as a three-fingered badass
Finishing the whole game just to die because you didn't save enough Mudokons
